He Rocasa Gran Canaria 2020-21 is already underway. The Teldense team started an atypical preseason yesterday marked by the demands of the coronavirus, with no more friendly matches than those of the Canary Islands Government Cup, a competition in which the Teldense team defends the title for another year.
The players, in what was the first contact of the newcomers María Gomes, Iara Grosso and Mizuki Hosoe with their new partners, faced an eminently physical preparatory session avoiding all contact between the athletes.
Before starting work, the components of the Rocasa campus and the technical staff attended to representatives of the media. All the protagonists underwent temperature control, hand hygiene and entry registration, in addition to wearing the mandatory masks to comply with the new normality that the Covid-19 has established in world society.
With Adriana Marksteiner absent as they were recovering from their knee injury in Austria, the rest of the players exercised under the orders of Carlos Herrera and Roberto Santana, although Paula Valdivia and Sayna Mbengue are still in the final stretch of their respective injuries .
One of the new faces of Rocasa, María Gomes, expressed feeling excited at the start of her new sports career. The Andalusian, who comes from Roquetas, wants to go step by step. “I hope that everything turns out well, that we are not confined again, that all the players are well and that we can take the team to the top,” he said.
She is excited to debut with the Gran Canaria club shirt in what will be the first official appointment of the season, the Queen’s Cup: “Coming from the silver category, everything is great for me. Being able to face the Bera Bera is something very strong”.
For his part, another of the transfers from Rocasa, Iara Grosso, we hope to face all the competitions with total normality. “I see the team wanting to fight for all the titles and I have no doubt that we all have the same desire and the same strength, although being aware that we must go little by little, to avoid injuries and be able to give everything on the track”, the Uruguayan international explained.
